“Exit”, the last project I am working with, is an exhibition whose start takes place in three exhibitions at the National Anthropological museum of Madrid, the Alliance française in Madrid, and the Gazzambo Gallery. Balanced between paintings and sculptures, the Exit series aims to make a pictorial and imaginary story of the exile's journey, the successive exile and even its possible success.

The sculptures were produced around a workshop of the anthropological museum in Madrid, with the help of Senegalese immigrants in Spain. Mame Mbaye (one of the participants of this workshop), street vendor, died of a heart attack when he was chased by the police in the streets of Madrid. This dramatic event provoked a popular revolt in the district of Lavapies. The Senegalese workshop of the museum and I, wanted to pay homage to him, and to immigrants who live same lifes.

Wanting to previously refer to the collection of plaster molds of indigenous faces exhibited in the anthropology museum, this is an opposition between portraits of the present immigrants, and inherited scientific sculptures from the colonial past. This confrontation is contrasted with the formal evocations of social scientist sculpture, traditional ceramic sculpture, the mortuary mask, the orientalist arts, or the trophy. The impact caused by this mixture of contradictory effects tries to reflect the paradoxes that Europe has with the reception reserved for refugees.

Without the rigor that characterizes the approach of the anthropologist or ethnologist scientist, but imitating its processes, my approach would like to provoke a new kind of view of the foreigner faces, intending to sketch a subjective sample of new human figures living in Europe.

The series of works under the title “Exit” includes a sculpture work and a painting work. Paintings made in 2018, try to evoke dreams of the traveller in the journey of exile. Sometimes considered as a tapestry pattern, sometimes as a window, and almost always on a square format, the series is composed of about thirty pieces, watercolour and acrylic on canvas and paper, by a medium size of 110x110 cm.

This seller rewards your purchases of multiple artworks


Baptiste Laurent (1980, Nantes) is a visual artist residing in Spain since 2007. He has exhibited in various artistic and cultural institutions such as the Palais de Tokyo, the Museo Nacional de Antropología in Madrid, the French Institute in Madrid, Esquina Nua , Espacio Seara, the Alliance Française de Madrid, the Gazzambo Gallery and the FL Gallery.

He developed his artistic practice as an autodidact, alongside his studies in political science and art history. He has been artistic director and manager of cultural projects in many cultural and artistic institutions (Palais de Tokyo, La Maison Rouge, Venice Biennale, Gallería Continua, etc.)

His traditional medium is painting, but he also works in sculpture and develops projects with a strong literary, social and anthropological component. In his recent publications and exhibitions "Mauvaises Tournures", "Bajo el mismo mar" and "Exit", he experimented with creative work in collaboration with other visual artists but also with literary authors.

He is an anti-academic, eclectic artist, who likes the syncretism of pictorial styles, and who wavers between neo-figurative narration, graphic painting, urban art and expressionist abstraction.

Founder of the "Latolier" shared studio, located in the Usera district of Madrid, he leads a dynamic community of Spanish and international visual artists.
